Book Description

Ella Quinn's intriguing and irresistible bachelors are masters in the game of seduction. But nothing has the power to change a single man's mind like a captivating woman. . .

William, Viscount Wivenly, plans to remain the most eligible of bachelors. He refuses to surrender to the schemes of husband-hunting ladies and matchmaking mamas. Fleeing the pressure of the ton, he's bent on finding refuge in the West Indies. What he finds instead is a fascinating stranger, a woman so unlike those of his society that he can't resist such a beguiling distraction. . .

Determined to let nothing complicate her mission to protect her family's livelihood while covertly rescuing orphaned slave children, Miss Eugénie Villaret does her best to evade suitors. But when dashing William lures her down a path of forbidden adventure and delicious danger, she may be convinced that business can indeed be mixed with pleasure—and persuaded to add passion to her priorities. . .

    5.0 out of 5 stars If we start this will be ever be able to stop? August 3, 2014
    Trying to manage her family and the business since her father’s death has been difficult for Miss Eugénie Villaret de Joyeuse as her mother believes only a man can fix the problems they are having. Eugénie points out it is a man that is getting them into this fix but her mother will not listen. When she sends for help from the extended family it is William, Viscount Wivenly that comes to her aid but discovers her real identify after a covert operation to expose the person trying to ruin their lives.

    William can fix the business issues but his heart issues with Eugénie are a whole other problem he is unsure how to tackle. His friend Andrew was quick to make his choices of whom to love but William wants to make sure that Eugénie is the one for him. Yet when he approaches with his desire for marriage she has the nerve to turn him down due to a lack of, dare he say it romance. A more determined man to win what he wants one will never be found outside of William and now that he wants Eugénie he will have her. The problem is there is a sinister plot by someone who wants to harm her and that is something William will never let happen. He rushes to her side and will prove that he can care for her, her family, and the business with every intention that love brings with it.

    When the situation escalates and Eugénie is taken from him the mystery of what happened to her father becomes so intertwined no one can figure out what is going on. Williams will not be stopped in his search to find her and take down the evil that refuses to stop interfering in their lives

    4.0 out of 5 stars Charming and sweet! August 7, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I read Ella Quinn's book ENTICING MISS EUGENIE VILLARET of her Marriage Game series and liked it. This is the story of William, Viscount Wivenly, who wishes to remain single as long as possible. He refuses to be chased by the young ladies who are looking for husbands. To escape the ton, he leaves on a trip to the West Indies. There, he meets a beautiful and fascinating stranger named Eugenie Villaret, a woman so different from the women he normally meets. Will he resist her? But Eugenie, has a mission, to save orphaned slaves children. Will she resist the charm of William? Will they be able to mix passion and business? This story was well written, her heroine independent and the hero handsome. My favorite romance by Ms. Quinn, is still, Desiring Lady Caro, which I think was the best book in her series.

    This is the fifth book in Ella Quinn’s The Marriage Game series [The Seduction of Lady Phoebe; The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh; The Temptation of Lady Serena; Desiring Lady Caro; Enticing Miss Eugenie Villaret] and out of all five, my least favorite.

    I really wanted to love this story as much as I loved the one right before it [Desiring Lady Caro], but something just didn’t click with me in this one.

    William was someone I didn’t like from the start, but I didn’t hate him. He just struck me as someone who was too dense and uncaring, and once I formed that opinion, it was hard for me to get on board of his ‘redemption’ to being a hero.

    Eugenie, our heroine who is supposed to be an innocent when it came to relationships with men and sophisticated enough to be someone who is fighting for a worthy cause of enslaved children was a contradiction, and I never connected with her.

    That said, I love this author and her work and even in this story she manages, through her wonderful prose, to take me back in time and enjoy the beauty of the setting, the Caribbean. I actually found the subplot of the hero and heroine’s friends’ love story more appealing and despite its pace, more believing.

    In the end, I do recommend it to all of those that have already read the other four books in this series, if for nothing else but for Ms. Quinn’s writing and research alone. She did an outstanding job of transporting me to and letting me experience not just history but a culture of the Dutch West Indies during Regency of which I knew nothing about. I so wish the characterization of the main characters was given just a tad more time and thought.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A charming adventure to marry... August 30, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    William, Viscount Wivenly, has never had to work for a lady’s attention or affection. Everything has always come very easy to Will, yet he still yearns for something greater. He is going to the West Indies to get away from the plotting, grasping, insipid girls and women that want him only for his title, both now, and when he inherits the earldom.

    Will arrives in St. Thomas, Danish West Indies to investigate issues with his Uncle’s company. He meets Miss Eugenie Villaret while he is posing as a mere mister and sparks immediately start to fly. Assuming Eugenie is a widow, Will considers an affair with her. Eugenie is the granddaughter of a count and a viscount and wants to marry for love, like her mamma and step-papa. After a major error on Will’s part, the mistaken identities are cleared up and the two are betrothed. Will has to woo and court her; something he has NO idea how to do.

    I found it endearing that even though Eugenie is not sure of Will’s affection or character, she takes his side in domestic issues. This is another first for Will--no one takes his side. The chase to wed for Will, Eugenie and their friends adds humor and an engaging charm to the story. The subplot of Eugenie’s step-papa and the villains added a brilliant layer of tension throughout the story. Ms. Quinn has created wonderful characters; fun, spirited and sometimes irreverent. Tidwell, Will’s valet, is an excellent example. He is forever worried about Will’s cravats to the determent of Will’s wellbeing, and it made me smile. Once again she has brought together a dazzling ensemble of companions as you travel through this story.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
